The smartwatch company, Pebble, is at it again. Last month, Pebble announced its next line of products on Kickstarter. This time, Pebble created a product specifically with fitness in mind.
These are the top 6 features of the Pebble 2 a great smartphone accessory.
- 7 Day Battery Life
The Pebble 2 is a battery sipper. It’s designed to last for a week on a single charge. No need to recharge it every night. Slap it on and record activity all week long.
- Color E-Ink Display
The Pebble 2 has an e-ink display. This is the secret to its great battery life. E-ink allows the watch face to be clearly visible in direct light. Perfect for viewing outdoors.
- Heart Rate Sensor
This is the first Pebble product to ship with a heart rate sensor. This addition alone shows Pebble’s dedication to making a product with fitness in mind.
The microphone allows for hands free reply to texts and “OK Google” and “Hey Siri” support (did we mention Pebble is cross-platform?)
- Water Resistant
The Pebble 2 is water resistant up to 30 meters. No issues with sweat, mud, rain, or casual swimming.
The Pebble 2 is available for pre-order. When it hits shelves, the price will be $129 USD. With all the features in consideration this makes the Pebble 2 relatively inexpensive compared to other products with similar functionality.
All in all, the Pebble 2 looks to be a great continuation of the Pebble lineup. Especially suited to activity tracking, the Pebble 2 promises to be a sleek, functional, and durable smartwatch.
